    Was an you tell me how did assessment go? Was this home based?

    Hi @beckyboo14.  Actually ok, was a long painful difficult day assessor was nice young lady.  BUT have read not to read into it.  But compared to last one she was an angel.  Not home no, and I was alone as no one could help in the day. I took my time did my best to get across all my day to day difficulty.  In lap of god's now. Xx

    Hi @Mattkimclarke

    I am glad to hear that you are happy with how your claim went. 

    Due to a backlog, I believe that the waiting time for you now should be between 6-8 weeks.

    I wish you the best outcome.
